Floats must meet lighting and other entry requirements. Face coverings will be required. All COVID-19 guidelines will be mandated. Additionally, please follow guidelines when building your float. Those interested in participating with a float must submit an application - please contact Susie O'Connor at or 303-655-2218. The deadline to submit a float entry is Friday, Dec. 4. 

If you have questions, please contact Susie O'Connor at or 303-655-2218.
